Meghan King Edmonds is getting candid about her relationship with boyfriend Christian Schauf. The Real Housewives of Orange County alum recently spilled the deets on how they met, their unconventional first date, and why she’s "up to her eyeballs in happiness" these days.
In a personal blog post entitled “My Life Lately…,” Meghan, who went Instagram official with Christian in May, opened up about her newfound happiness. “It’s hard to believe how much my life has changed over the past few weeks but let’s start here: I have a boyfriend now. (That felt strange to type…),” she wrote. “Meanwhile I’m overall more at peace. My neck rarely bothers me, I’m eating more and gaining weight, spending more time outside with my kids, and I’m often told I’m ‘glowing.’ Happiness will do these things I suppose.”
Meghan went on to detail the difficulties of adapting to life as a single mom in the aftermath of her divorce from ex, Jim Edmonds. “I had to adjust to my new single life while trying my best to maintain a stable environment for my children while throwing myself into work. Then COVID hit and, well, everybody’s plans changed. I worked on myself A LOT,” she wrote.
After several months of focusing on her own health, Meghan met Christian via a dating app and some additional matchmaking from a mutual friend. Despite having “the most unusual first date IRL,” which included “a masked airport pickup,” the mom of three and the Uncharted Supply Co. founder hit it off quickly.
“Our first dates were on FaceTime, going on hikes, and pouring our own cocktails,” she wrote. “It wasn’t until weeks into our dating relationship when we finally went to a coffee shop, got a drink at a bar, and ordered a meal at a restaurant – this order felt a little backwards and old-fashioned to us but it also made us feel more deeply connected.”
Meghan concluded her message by sharing her gratitude for where she’s at now, stating, “My kids are doing great (Aspen can’t wait for school to start again and I’m with her on that one!) and I’m up to my eyeballs in happiness. It’s amazing what can happen when you work on yourself, put intentions into the world, then give it up to the universe. “
Meghan and Jim split last October following five years of marriage. The two share three kids, daughter Aspen and twin sons Hart and Hayes.
